WBA (Super) heavyweight champion, IBF, WBO Andy Ruiz Jr. shows off the power of the punch ahead of the duel rematch versus Anthony Joshua at Diriyah Arena, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 7 December. Ruiz showed his expertise and toughness in public boxing at The Boxing Club East Village, San Diego, California, USA, Sunday (10/20/2019).
Ruiz Jr’s punch dropped Joshua to canvas four times before being declared the seventh-round TKO win in the first duel at Madison Square Garden, New York City, USA, June 1.
Now, Ruiz Jr’s punch is more sharp and sharpened. In the training session in public, Ruiz who was guided by Coach Manny Robles showed a rapid destructive blow from his right hand, which should be wary of Joshua.
“Thank you to all who came to my practice site in San Diego today. Thank you to everyone who put this event together,” Ruiz Jr. said in his verified Instagram account (andy_destroyer13), Monday (10/21/2019).
Reported by the Daily Mail, Ruiz Jr. also predicted that Joshua would make his body slimmer to win the fight by winning numbers. Joshua did look to lose weight in the last few weeks before the rematch in Saudi Arabia.
The 30-year-old Mexican-American boxer believes that Joshua had unintentionally revealed his tactic for the duel titled ‘Clash on the Dunes’. Ruiz Jr. is ready for a tiring meeting in the ring.
“Joshua looks a little slimmer, but I think it won’t make any difference. He will try and win with points, mainly because he will run. “
” My job is to cut his pace, and that’s how we have practiced. “
“I am not too worried about what he is doing. We are worried about what we should do. He has been training hard.”
“I feel he has more pressure than me. I just have to do what I have to do, and let my hands move and focus.
“He told me his strategy, but whatever he did, we would do our best for us to do something.”
